In Part I (1), we have considered the flow of an incompressible isotropic viscoelastic fluid in the annular region between two eccentric circular cylinders with parallel axes, produced by the motion of the inner cylinder, parallel to its axis, with constant velocity. It was assumed that the flow is sufficiently slow so that the second-order Rivlin-Ericksen constitutive equation is applicable. In the present paper, the same problem is considered. However, we now assume that the fourth-order Rivlin-Ericksen constitutive equation is valid.
